Well, it’s all done. I’m graduated.
Even with all the agony and suffering, the three years went by rather fast and left me with something valuable.
Some people make fun of a BA (Bachelor of Arts), but I enjoyed the topics I studied (History and Religion). I became a better writer. I even became more outgoing. I learned new things about the world.
Now life will change, and of course that’s a bit scary. I’m slowly starting my full time job search. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I have decided to follow my bliss. I want to work in fashion. I’ve been trying to decide whether some kind of fashion schooling would be worth it (something like merchandizing), but I’m not so sure. I would like to get a job where I can learn practical things immediately. I’d rather not work in a large retail store like forever 21 where I would likely just be a pawn (Rather than say, working in a small independently owned boutique where I could actually learn how to run a store), but I am willing to, if it means getting experience in the fashion industry.
PS. If you work in the fashion industry (in any way, shape or form), please comment below and tell me about it – how you got in, how you like it, etc!
